Review: The "Skinneeez" cat toy!
We were sent a sample of a new cat toy on the market to test and review. They are called Skinneeez (that's two Ns and three Es), and are cat toys that don't have any cotton stuffing in them, just catnip. The packaging says it makes them more like real animals, though personally I wish that real animals did have a tasty catnip smell! Our toy was a squirrel. Now, I have seen bigger squirrels in my day, but for an indoor squirrel, perhaps small is best.
Pandora got first dibs on the toy because that's just the way we roll. (Well, and she sometimes will give the smacky-paw to anyone who gets in her way.) But we all got a chance at it. We like it! Zowie likes to carry it around in her mouth (but she wouldn't let mum get a photo! silly Zowie.) However, pretty soon afterwards, it ended up where all the best toys do: under the sofa.
Here are a couple of video clips of us playing with the Skinneeez toy:
Our verdict? We like this toy! We only wish that mum would move the sofa more often so that it wouldn't be missing as much!
Mum says this toy is available at all sorts of pet stores, so make sure your beans keep a lookout for one!
